A LEADERSHIP ROLE
        At Ford, we’re committed to achieving top-level performance in real-
        world safety initiatives and driver-assist measures. Advancing vehicle
        safety includes the development of features that further protect occupants
        and other vulnerable road users in a variety of situations. We offer a range of
        innovative driver-assist technologies that utilize radar, sonar and cameras to
        sense and interpret the environment. These systems can also aid with routine
        driving tasks to reduce demands on the driver. Many Ford innovations require
        demanding internal criteria long before regulatory standards are adopted.
